Second quarter analysis: Clay's hot streak continues as Bills hold slim lead on Jets, 7-6

The Bills opened the scoring early in the quarter when Tyrod Taylor hit Charles Clay for a 1-yard touchdown, capping a 12-play, 77-yard drive. LeSean McCoy had the big play on the possession, gaining 23 yards on a third-and-3 run, while Mike Tolbert had gains of 6 and 14 yards on the ground in addition to a 10-yard reception.

The Jets answered with a 48-yard field goal from Chandler Catanzaro after picking up their first first down of the season with 11:16 left in the second quarter. Catanzaro added a 52-yarder just before halftime.

Wide left: Stephen Hauschka missed his first field-goal attempt as a Bill, hooking the ball wide left from 46 yards out.

Clay's steak continues: Clay's touchdown continued his scoring streak with Taylor, marking their fifth touchdown connection in their last four games together. Clay scored four touchdowns in his final three games with Taylor last season after missing the Raiders game for the birth of his daughter.

Two-minute drill: The Bills took over on their 25 with 1:44 left in the half. Even with the aid of a 24-yard pass interference penalty, the offense couldn't get into field-goal range and had to punt.

Penalty watch: The Bills had two penalties for 15 yards in the second quarter, bringing to halftime total 5 for 40.
